The Collection

The Historic collections of Devon and Cornwall Constabulary remain one of the most complete collections in the UK still attached to its Police Force. Although it continues to be stored at Okehampton Police station it is being carefully catalogued by a team of dedicated volunteers under the guidance of the curator. The collection holds artefacts relating to the history and formation of Devon and Cornwall Constabulary from the mid 1800’s to the present day. To date over 11000 records consisting of objects, books, photographs and archives have been entered on to the collections database.

The Friends Group have now been supported by The Skinners' Company Lady Neville Charity - giving small grants to local grass roots organisations.
